    Poor performances and criticism

    Not only do the Red Devils have an injury crisis, but they have been accused of poor performances too.

    Wingers Antony and Alejandro Garnacho have thus far proven to be particularly disappointing, failing the provide the attacking spark United need.

    Marcus Rashford has also failed to deliver, albeit out of his favoured position.

    The midfield trio of Mount, Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes has not lived up to the hype either, though some of the blame for this could also be pinned on Ten Hag not drilling in a solid structure.

    Casemiro, crucial to the Red Devils' success in the Carabao Cup and a Champions League return last season, has been guilty of being dribbled past on far too many occasions as a defensive midfielder.

    Inside Man Utd's Injury crisis

    Manchester United's promising start to the summer seems to have unravelled in the space of two games.

    Starting the season without a recognised forward was far from ideal for Ten Hag.

    However, with £72m new boy Hojlund turning up a lower-back injury in his medical, United have delayed the 20-year-old's introduction to the rough and tumbles of Premier League life.

    They were not helped by pre-season injuries to Tom Heaton, Amad Diallo and Kobbie Mainoo, while Tyrell Malacia carried over an injury from last season.

    But since the season started United have been hit by three MORE injuries to Harry Maguire, Mount and Luke Shaw, with the latter two coming within 24 hours of each other.
